Actually it is a threesome that I am lusting after...myself, a salted caramel apple, and a caramel apple covered in crushed pretzels. Mmmmmmm....I need you....I can't live without you....oops a little drool on my keyboard.
I found these ideas on one of my favorite blogs. The Pioneer Woman...She seems so genuinely herself, a bit of blogger inspiration for me. So, back to my new love affair. I have 6 days until Halloween, a messy house due to next item, ongoing family illness, work to do, diapers to wash, a playdate, weekly bread baking, disinfectant all purpose cleaner to mix up, a costume to make, and apparently I now need (yep, I mean need) to make these apples. Just take a look at this picture
my new love.
I know the combinations sound odd, but let me explain. On family vacation this year, my husband D and I shared a concrete with crushed pretzels in the front seat while Mr. B napped in his carseat in the backseat. It was so heavenly, soothing all my taste buds. I regretted "sharing" it with D, although I think my son missing out added a guilty pleasure component to the overall yum.
So, please do yourself a favor and try this.
My husband, D, just brought me a salted caramel (ok, so I won't leave him for a caramel apple). I thought it was meant as a request to not add another task of making caramel apples to a busy week. Instead, he said go ahead and make them, "But please don't get the kitchen sticky!" He knows me well and brings me caramels. He's definitely a keeper. Thanks D! Love you!!
